Lustleigh village, Devon
The picturesque village of Lustleigh lies in the Wrey Valley of eastern Dartmoor about four miles northwest of Bovey Tracey.
The main part of the village is located around the parish church of St John the Baptist. Surrounding this are old buildings, many of which are thatched. There is a village shop, garage, tea room and a pub.
The area has been inhabited since prehistoric times as can be seen by the remains of stone hut circles, especially around the 'Cleave' and the presence of an ancient burial monument 'Datuidoc's Stone' which dates from before AD 600.
Lustleigh does not appear in the Domesday Book, but it is believed that the village was known at that time as 'Sutreworde' - Anglo Saxon for 'South of the Wood'.
The village is excellently placed to explore Bovey Tracey, Haytor and the whole of East Dartmoor.
